NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) — Investigators tried to figure out what led a bright but painfully awkward 20year -old to slaughter 26 children and adults at a Connecticut elementary school, while townspeople sadly took down some of their Christmas decorations and struggled Saturday with how to go on. The tragedy brought forth soul-searching and grief around the globe. Families as far away as Puerto Rico began to plan funerals for victims who

Police shed no light on what triggered the seconddeadliest school shooting in U.S. history, though state police Lt. Paul Vance said investigators had found “very good evidence ... that our investigators will be able to use in painting the complete picture, the how and, more importantly, the why.” He would not elaborate. However, another law enforcement official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said investigators have found no note or manifesto from Lanza of the sort they have come to See MASSACRE, Page A3

The American Legion teamed up with Johnny Gonzales on Thursday at Sierra Middle School to encourage students to embrace the spirit of giving. Children from Sierra and Del Norte Elementary schools authored personal messages of support to troops overseas and folded these notes into small American flags that soldiers can carry in their pockets. The students also brought new and used toys to the school to help Gonzales with his annual Christmas Toy Giveaway, which takes place on Christmas Eve at 7 p.m. in the Yucca Recreation Center. “The theme today is to give instead of receive for the holidays,” American Legion member

Orlando Padilla said. “We’re recognizing the troops, just telling them we care and that we remember them during the holidays. We know they’re not here with us but, hopefully, they come back to us safely.” Ralph Matta, science chairman at Sierra, said the Pocket Flag Project teaches children about the sacrifices men and women who serve make each day. “What I hope it does is raise awareness of our troops overseas. Because it is a big sacrifice — being away from family and home. “And it’s important that our troops get a little bit of home that they can carry with them.” After the ceremony, the flags were given to the Adopt-A-Soldier program, which will ship the flags to troops overseas.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Signaling new movement in “fiscal cliff” talks, House Speaker John Boehner has proposed raising the top rate for ear ners making more than $1 million, a person familiar with the negotiations said. President Barack Obama, who wants higher top rates for households earning more than $250,000, has not accepted the offer, this person said. The proposal, however, indicated progress in talks

AP source: Boehner offers millionaire tax hike that had appeared stalled. The person would only discuss the plan on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the negotiations. As part of a broader budget deal, Boehner is still seeking more spending cuts than Obama has proposed, particularly in mandatory health care spending. Boehner has asked for a long-ter m increase in eligibility age for Medicare and for lower costs-of-living adjustments for Social Security. Boehner’s tax proposal was first reported by Politico. A Boehner aide would not comment on the report. At issue are expiring tax rates that would automatically increase on Jan. 1 for virtually every income tax payer if Congress and the president don’t act. Steep budget cuts are also scheduled to kick in, unless Congress and Obama agree to

Christmas shoppers at the Roswell Mall set down their purchases and took in a show of color and culture, Saturday afternoon, when Roswell Folklorico presented its annual holiday show. About 60 performers from the ages of 4 to 75 demonstrated an array of expressive dances from the regions Nayarit, Chiapas, Chihuahua, New Mexico, Jalisco and Yucatan, sharing a program that Folklorico director Frank Herrera called “our gift to the community.” “The community has supported us for all these years, so we do this program for them,” he

The program began Saturday with the group’s advanced class performing Nayarit, the first time the group had performed this dance in a holiday show. The dance, which lasted nearly five minutes, involved a lot of choreography and is among the most challenging to teach, Herrera said. See DANCERS, Page A3

Good Samaritan seeks donations for Linnette CHAUNTE’L POWELL RECORD STAFF WRITER From the moment Staci Vanderwart saw a picture of 5-year-old Linnette Alina Avalos, she knew she was a special child. While at Portofino’s Italian Restaurant, she saw a picture of a little girl with a giant smile on her face despite battling leukemia. She said something about her picture drew her to the child. “I really think it’s God, honestly,” she said recalling the connection she felt to the child. On a whim, she left her phone number there when the family returned to the restaurant that following week. They were able to get in contact with Vanderwart and from there a friendship with the family was formed. Since meeting, Vanderwart said the family has been a joy to be around. So much so, that her main wish this Christmas is to bring the family a little bit of joy. She’s asking that members of the community look into their hearts this holiday season and donate to a little girl trying to beat the odds. She said the family is in need of food and clothing, but toys for Avalos and her 1-year-old sister would be welcomed as well. To Vanderwart, it will be well worth the effort to help a child who’s inspired her. “I just love her so much because she always has the biggest smile on her face,” she said. “She is just so

Top EP school official out EL PASO, Texas (AP) — A top administrator for the troubled El Paso school district has resigned amid scrutiny into her alleged role into a test-cheating scheme that sent the for mer superintendent to prison. The El Paso T imes reports that former interim superintendent Terri Jordan resigned Friday and that two other administrators could be fired next week. The district is in turmoil over what prosecutors say was a conspiracy to remove low-performing students from classrooms and enrich bonuses for school officials. Jordan was most recently the district’s chief of staf f. A vote scheduled for Tuesday on the other administrators could be the last decisions made by a beleaguered school board that the state is seeking to remove. Ex-superintendent Lorenzo Garcia was sentenced to more than three years in prison after pleading guilty to fraud.

upbeat and just an inspiration and a joy.” Avalos’ mother Eva Fernandez is a single parent who quit her job to take care of her full time, taking her to get chemo treatments in Albuquerque. Despite having to spend Thanksgiving and Halloween in the hospital, Fernandez said her daughter continues to keep a smile on her face. “She’s a really, really strong girl,” she said. “She’s always laughing, she’s always playing around and has a positive outlook even though she may have been undergoing chemo treatment for a week straight.” Fer nandez added that the key to keeping her upbeat, is to remain positive herself. “I think (she stays positive) because we all do,” she said. “I tell her that even though she’s sick, she’s going to get better and live her life as a normal kid.” Donations of clothes, food and toys can be dropped off at the Roswell Daily Record, 2301 N.

RPD busts Perry at Animal Control

Roswell Daily Record

Credit card fraudster hits Roswell Stripes Roswell has become another in a series of cities victimized by a fraudster, who has hit Portales, Ft. Sumner, Artesia and various cities in West Texas. According to Roswell Police Department spokeswoman Sabrina Morales, the suspect seems to target Stripes stores exclusively. The RPD received a report from Stripes on Southeast Main Street, Wednesday, after they discovered the crime. A representative of the store told officials that the suspect came into the store on Tuesday to add $500 to his pre-paid Visa card. He reportedly placed several items on the counter. The card was activated and put on the counter. When the employee’s back was turned, he switched the newly replenished card with another card and placed the first card into his pocket. After the transaction was rung up, he then offered the second unactivated card for payment and when it came up empty, he left the store with the first card newly activated in his pocket. He drove away in a small white car, either a Toyota or a Pontiac. Morales said the Stripes’ corporate offices advised that this customer may be the same subject who defrauded the company of more than $3,000 in this way. The activated card was later reported as being used in Walmart on Tuesday afternoon. Video footage shows a bald man with pale skin and a goatee, although the police reports described him as a Hispanic male. Eye color is unknown since he was wearing dark glasses. Police have released pictures obtained from the surveillance cameras and are asking people who recognize the subject in the photo to contact the Roswell Police Department. 624-6770, or Crime Stoppers, 1888-954-8477.

Georgia Perry adopted 5year-old Chase from Animal Control.

The Roswell Police Department arrested Georgia Perry after she assaulted Animal Control Officer Andrew Gross, Thursday. Perry had adopted the featured Pet of the Week dog, Chase, from Animal Services on Wednesday. Perry called early Thursday morning and reported Chase and one other dog, a blue-heeler cross that she also had adopted from Animal Services, missing. Later she arrived at Animal Services to see if she could find her dog and became verbally abusive with the staf f and people who entered the lobby.

New storm brings rain, snow, slick roads to NM ALBUQUERQUE (AP) — A second blast of winter was bringing more rain and snow to New Mexico as a storm that dropped more than two feet of snow in parts of Arizona moved in. The National Weather Service in Albuquerque says precipitation moved into the central part of the state at midafternoon Saturday. The weather service posted winter storm warnings for northwestern mountains and the Sangre de Cristo mountains, with winter storm advisories posted south of Chama and in the foothill of the middle Rio Grande Valley. No more than a few inches of snow is expected anywhere in the state. Mountain roads will again be slick and icy. The main storm should leave the state by midday today, but scattered storms could persist.

Perry left, but came back over the lunch hour, when Animal Services was closed, and parked her truck on the landscaping in the front of the building. Gross approached her, infor ming her that the of fices were closed, and asked her to move her vehicle. Perry began to throw “pig ear” treats at the officer. When he repeated his request, Perry poured some sort of liquid, described as either water or beer, over her hand and began to genuflect, making the Sign of the Cross and flicking the liquid at him. “She may have looked in the kennels. I don’t know. I wasn’t here when she came the first time,” Gross said, “but when she returned at noon, I advised her twice that we didn’t have her dogs.” The police were called to the scene at which time Perry began to fight with the officers. According to the incident report, Perry became agitated and loud. Officers asked her repeatedly to leave and she refused. She swore at the officers. Perry was arrested on charges of criminal trespass and taken to Chaves County Detention Center. The location of the two dogs is unknown. People are urged to contact Animal Control at 575-624-6722 if they see either Chase or the blue healer-catahoula mix. j.palmer@rdrnews.com

Authorities said Adam Lanza had no criminal history, and it was not clear whether he had a job. Lanza was believed to have suffered from a personality disorder, said a law enforcement official who spoke on condition of anonymity. Another law enforcement official, also speaking on condition of anonymity, said Lanza had been diagnosed with Asperger’s, a mild form of autism often characterized by social awkwardness.

Bergman served four years in the Air Force and said he’s gained a greater respect for those who risked it all as well as the families that never saw them return home. “There are just so many people who never came back and so many families that never got closure,” he said. “That’s really important to people, closure ... it’s definitely the biggest honor I’ve had being able to lay that POW/MIA wreath.” The event began in 1992 when Worcester Wreath Company of Harrington, Maine, found itself with an abundance of wreaths after the holiday season ended. Years before that, Morrill Worcester, owner of the company, took a trip to Arlington National Cemehaul.

Refuse to make this situation more provocative. Tonight: Run holiday errands before meeting a friend. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)### Curb a need to overspend on loved ones.

Tonight: Treat yourself, too. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)##### Act on a friend’s suggestion. When discussing it with others, you’ll discover that they also like this idea.

The mystery deepened as Newtown education officials said they had found no link between Lanza’s mother and the school, contrary to news reports that said she was a teacher there.

Within minutes, he killed 20 children, six adults and himself. On Saturday, Chief Medical Examiner Dr. H.

All six adults killed at the school were women. Of the 20 children, eight were boys and 12 were girls. All the children were 6 or 7 years old.

I get really excited to teach (the kids) because I know that it’s something that may be lost if I don’t continue. And now I need to look for someone to take my place.” Herrera said he tries to incorporate stories into the steps and choreography of these dances to his students.

When the time came for Worcester to dispose of the excess wreaths, he decided to honor America’s veterans by adorning the older sections of the cemetery. This project continued on for several years almost in secrecy, but gained national attention in 2005 and Wreaths Across America was born. It is projected that more than 400,000 wreaths will be placed nationwide by more than 150,00 volunteers. The wreaths will be taken down at 1 p.m. today and escorted to the Veterans Memorial at South Park Cemetery, where there will be a short ceremony before the wreaths are placed. The ceremony is estimated to start around 1:30 p.m., and is open to the public. cpowell@rdrnews.com

SANTA FE — Our federal government has neglected to address many issues over the years. Two of them really stand out. The issues involve officially recognizing our nation’s development of a weapon that has changed the world and recognizing the New Mexicans who served as guinea pigs for studying the effects of an A-bomb explosion. Bills have been introduced to correct both. A measure to create a Manhattan Project National Park based in Los Alamos; Oak Ridge, Tenn.; and Hanford, Wash., passed the U.S. House in September but without the two-thirds vote necessary for the rules under which the bill was considered. Objections included cost, opposition to nuclear energy, opposition to the National Park Service and an attitude that either we would be celebrating our action or apologizing for our action.

OPINION

Roswell Daily Record

INSIDE THE CAPITOL

It’s puzzling how much the definitions of “compromise” and “balance” have changed since the November election. The message out of the White House, dutifully repeated by the press corps, is that the GOP’s stubborn refusal to compromise on President Barack Obama’s balanced approach to attacking the budget deficit is what’s holding up a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff. To the president, compromise apparently means capitulation, and balance means nothing but tax hikes will do. He’ll be in Detroit Monday to continue selling that theme. Although they’re getting no credit for it, the Republican congressional leadership actually has moved a far piece from the “no new taxes” pledge that had been its line in the sand prior to the election. Those leaders have agreed to raise more than $800 billion in new revenue by closing tax loopholes and eliminating deductions for higher -income ear ners. That’s the amount Obama said he wanted to extract from the wealthy during the campaign. The GOP has also expressed a willingness to put defense spending cuts on the table as part of the overall deficit-reduction package. Both positions have brought the leaders harsh criticism from within their own ranks. But they recognize that in winning re-election, Obama gained bargaining clout. The president, though, is taking the stance that victory means he doesn’t have to bargain at all. His counter to the Republican concessions is to move sharply away from the middle. Obama now wants twice the amount of new taxes from the wealthy — $1.6 trillion — and instead of spending cuts, he’s asking for $50 billion for another stimulus package. His only concession is a vague commitment to discuss $400 million in entitlement reforms, but only after the tax hikes are in place. The president also would double taxes on capital gains and dividends, a disastrous step that would chill job-creating investments. And he wants to be the sole decider of when and how much the debt ceiling rises. Obama must know Republicans can’t accept these terms. Yes, Obama won his election. But leaders of the House also were re-elected in November, and their voters did not send them back to Washington to affirm policies that would replace the fiscal cliff with a downhill slope that eventually leads to the same ruined economic place. Republicans, against their better instincts, have agreed to transfer a considerable amount of money from private pockets into government coffers. That’s a significant move, and one that comes with a political price. The president should respond by showing more flexibility with tax rates and instead accept the more effective revenue raising approach offered by the GOP. Economic history teaches that tax revenue stays at roughly 18 percent of gross domestic product regardless of where tax rates are set, because GDP slows when rates rise, and grows when rates decline. Closing loopholes and ending deductions, however, will limit how much income the Warren Buffets of the world can shield from the tax man. The president seems convinced that if the fiscal cliff is not averted, Republicans will get the blame, and he’ll then be able to force the GOP to accept his terms. That’s a risky bet, and one that could lead the nation back into recession. A better goal for the president is to work in good faith toward a pragmatic solution that doesn’t harm economic growth. Republicans are moving off their ideological hard line; the president should do the same. Guest Editorial The Detroit News

of some of the hundreds of thousands who worked on the project. The top scientists on the project already have been interviewed at length. The effort now is to get revealing stories from others. One insight that has emerged is the interchanges that occurred in a remote log cabin near Los Alamos where decisions were conducted involving a critical experiment about whether plutonium could be used to fuel the bomb. When evidence revealed that the experiment would fail, the project almost came to an end until an additional procedure was devised. Another story came out of Oak Ridge, which was in a Tennessee county that still was dry. Efforts to keep the staff happy with bootleg hooch were very novel. But the primary reason for wanting the National Park Service to interpret the bomb-making project is to present to visitors from throughout the world America’s story of why the bomb was

built and used. Museums and parks at Hiroshima and Nagasaki have been telling their story for more than 50 years. Both memorials are located at ground zero. Both are dedicated to world peace and tell a good story. But it is time we told our story. Jeanette and I toured the Nagasaki memorial some years ago with a group of World War II veterans. They were especially incensed with a statement on an explanatory placard saying that the United States dropped the bomb on Nagasaki in order to see if it worked. The vets declared we knew it worked because we dropped it on ourselves first. That event occurred at Trinity Site between Carrizozo and Socorro. Area ranchers were not evacuated or even warned. Many of those families have been ravaged by cancer. The government has provided no recognition or assistance to these people despite repeated

requests. The New Mexico delegation has introduced legislation seeking assistance similar to that provided to laboratory employees who worked on the bombs in those early days. But there is no help yet. Action is needed on both these fronts. Actually the Manhattan Project Memorial should be located on ground zero at Trinity Site, just as the memorials at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but it is on White Sands Missile Range and the government doesn’t want to give up a small corner of its vast holdings. As historians say, there is no better place to tell a story than where it happened. Spreading out the memorial among three states does have the advantage of pulling in more support from Congress. But even that isn’t working. (Write to Jay Miller at 3 La Tusa, Santa Fe, NM 87505; by fax at 984-0982; or by e-mail at insidethecapitol@hotmail.com)

SINGAPORE — While the U.S. unemployment rate “dropped” to 7.7 percent last month — a figure even The Washington Post acknowledged was due “... in large part because the labor force fell by 350,000 ...” — here in this modern and prosperous city-state of slightly more than 5 million people, unemployment is practically nonexistent. A taxi driver tells me, “Everyone here works.” With unemployment at an astonishingly low 1.9 percent, he is nearly right. In part, this is due to a work ethic that seems to be

DEAR DOCTOR K: The last time I had blood work, my doctor didn’t check my CRP level. Wouldn’t my CRP level have given him a better idea of my risk of heart disease? DEAR READER: You ask a good — and controversial — question. Let me say up front that this test has been developed and studied by a colleague of mine at Harvard Medical School, and revenue from the test comes to my colleague and to the hospital where I practice.

Many studies have shown that the CRP test does, indeed, help estimate a person’s risk for heart disease. The question is whether the test should be used in everyone and how much additional information it gives. A recent article in the New England Journal of Medicine found that checking CRP levels may not tell us much about cardiovascular disease risk after all, at least in the average person.

25 YEARS AGO


What our nation needs is more heroes. What our community needs is more heroes. What our families need are more heroes. There is a shortage of heroes among us. Now, more than ever in the history of mankind, we need heroes among us. Can you be a much needed hero? Are you worthy of being considered a hero? Those around us need individuals to look up to in their day-today life. They need someone who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way. Individuals who rise above. To a child these individuals may appear larger than life. These are people who are placed in a position where they can influence others. Through their positive attributes they can touch and change the world one life at a time. Recently I listened to a series of talks by Dr. Andy Stanley, a pastor of a large church north of Atlanta, on heroes. He did a good job of breaking down what a hero is to its simplest elements. I will mix his thoughts with my thoughts in analyzing heroes and what is required to become one. Many boys pick up a stick and a trash can lid and act out in their imagination killing a firebreathing dragon or a villain with super powers whose sole desire is to destroy the planet. They swing a make believe sword and in the end conquer evil and save the day. When asked what they want to be when they grow up, they may respond “a super hero.” Then they grow up and forget about conquering evil with good. A hero doesn’t forget this battle as he or she gets older. Heroes can be broken into two categories. Some people become heroes because they rise up in a

single occasion. Others make repetitive choices that are continuously good and right in nature and they rise above by their way of life. Although both categories are important, I think the second is a tougher category of “hero” than the first because it occurs over a substantial period of time. If I asked you what characteristics a hero possesses or what attributes makes a person a hero, it would be interesting to hear your response. I would expect descriptive words such as “courageous,” “adversity,” “perseverance” or “selflessness.” These are good personal traits and are characteristics many heroes display, but none of them are mandatory for a person to become a hero. All heroes have two things in common, clarity and an irresistible urge to act. Both of these are mandatory elements necessary to create a hero. Although both of these are critical, you cannot get to the second element without having the first, so allow me to focus on the element of “clarity.” What is clarity? I will tell you what clarity isn’t. It is not living a life of lukewarm. It is not living a life of excuses. It is not living a life of “it’s not my responsibility.” It’s not living a life

JUST A THOUGHT

Dr. K

of finding fault in others with no accountability by yourself. It is not living life in a fog. It is not walking aimlessly looking for direction. Many people purposely and consciously choose to live their lives without clarity so that they don’t have to take the right action when the circumstances require action to be taken. Because of this, many people are afraid of living with clarity. When clarity disappears, so does urgency. This can happen on an individual level or on a collective level such as an organization, a community or a nation. Heroes typically don’t set out to be a hero. They just do the right thing in a moment of need. Individuals who become heroes from an event are those who act without thinking. They dive into a frozen river to save a person who is drowning, they jump onto a person who falls onto a subway track to protect them from a train, they sprint into a burning building to rescue a trapped person. In essence, an event hero runs into danger when others are running away. These heroes when interviewed after the event are asked questions like “Have you always been courageous?” They give responses like “Courage had nothing to do with it, someone just needed help so I took action.” They may even add, “In that situation, it would have been more difficult for me not to act.” I think of the story of the good Samaritan told in the Bible at Luke 10:25. After two members of the clergy walked by a man beaten and dying in the roadway, a stranger from Samaria stops and renders aid. I think if the media at the time had interviewed him

afterward, he would have simply said, “What’s the big deal ... the beaten man needed help and I helped him.” The Samaritan had clarity in his life. A hero acts regardless of the consequences. It is 17-year-old Cassie Bernall in the turmoil of Columbine High School with a gun to her head being asked if she believed in God and her final words being “yes, I believe.” She lived her life with clarity. It is Martin Luther King Jr. sacrificing his life because of his clarity of a person not being discriminated against because of the color of his skin. It is Jesus Christ loving those who hated him, even asking their forgiveness while they were killing him with a painful death on a cross. Both Dr. King and Jesus had clarity. They acted regardless of the consequences eventually costing both their lives. But heroes also exist in our daily lives even though they often go unrecognized. It is a man on an out-of-state business trip who has the opportunity to have an extramarital relationship and exits the situation because of his commitment to his wife and family. This man has clarity in his life. It is the employee who is handling unreported cash and counts every penny and turns it in to his employer. This employee has clarity in his life. A hero can walk into any situation and see what needs to be done. He or she sees a wrong that needs to be righted. It can be as big as a war or as small as a relationship. A hero does the right thing at the right time in the right way. The second element necessary for a hero is the urge to act. Hav-

ing clarity alone doesn’t impact anyone outside you unless you take action on your clarity. But if you have clarity in your life, you cannot not act. With clarity in your life, action will occur without you having to think about it. The irresistible urge to act will occur to implement the clarity in your mind. My challenge to you is to be a hero. Live your life with clarity and then take action on your clarity. I read a sign in a store recently that said “Find something you believe in so much that you would die for, then live for it.” Wow, an interesting twist on choosing what is important in your life. There are many crossroads ahead for you. If you have clarity in your life before you get to the crossroads, you will make the right decision when you choose which direction to move. These will be spiritual decisions, family decisions, employment decisions, individual decisions. These decisions will be the defining moments in your life. Typically you will not control when these moments occur, but you will control how you respond and you can be prepared in advance. Live your life with clarity and the irresistible urge to act and be a hero. The choice is entirely yours. I believe there is a need for a hero in every environment you are in. You have been called for this time. Just a thought ... Rick Kraft is a local attorney and the executive director of the Leadership Roswell Program.

At three months old, her father Joe died, and the

OBITUARIES/STATE family moved to California and traveled in a covered wagon. The family worked in the fields picking produce and cotton. Dottie started helping when she was 5 years old. Starting at a young age, Dottie learned to play the guitar and started singing. She loved singing folk art songs. When she married Ed, Dottie traveled back to California, where she started singing at many nightclubs, including the Palomino Club. She also traveled to San Diego several times a year, to sing to the Navy personnel. She per for med at numerous benefits giving back to her fans, in Santa Monica, Calif., where she sang with Little Jimmy Dickens, Dolly Parton, Roy Clark, Buck Owens, Merle Haggard and the young Garth Brooks. Dottie said, “I wish I had the money to back this young man (Garth), because he is going to go far.” She loved getting to work with Minnie Pearl. Dottie told of many wonder ful times she had on stage. She recorded “I Once Felt the Same,” which she co-wrote. She also wrote and recorded “The Right Guy, I’ll Never Love Another.” She sang back-up to several recordings of Christian songs. At family gatherings, Dottie would get out her guitar and start singing. Family and friends would gather around with kids sitting on the floor to hear her. Dottie always encouraged them all to join in. Dottie met her husband Ed when he worked at a gas station in Roswell. They fell in love and married on Aug. 7, 1947. Ed got a job in the gas and oil fields, and they traveled to many towns and states. Once their children were old enough to go to school, the traveling stopped. They went back to Roswell, but then decided to move to California, where she was a housewife and started her singing career. When offered an opportunity to sing on “Hee Haw,” she knew the traveling and time away from her children would be required. So, she turned it down to be there for her family. She had seven sons and one daughter, Eddie, Steven, David, Gary, Jim, Nick, Rick and Lela. Dottie said, “When they started arriving in two’s, I knew it was time to quit!” Her parents, siblings, husband Ed, two sons, Steven and Gary, and one granddaughter, Christine preceded her in death.

Miller Ray Van Eaton was born Nov. 23, 1923, on his home ranch at Olive, the sixth of nine children born to John Frederick and Hazel Trella Van Eaton. He went home to be with the Lord on Dec. 14, 2012. He grew up on the ranch in the midst of the Great Depression, helping with all the ranching duties. He was an excellent marksman and horseman, and could ride a horse bareback at a full gallop. He attended country schools through the eighth grade, and then moved to Roswell, where he attended Roswell High School. He lived with his older sister Hazel and younger brother Tom while attending high school. The day after high school graduation, he was sworn into the Army Air Corps at Fort Bliss in El Paso. He was a proud World War II veteran, serving with the 5th Air Force, 312th Bomb Group, flying combat missions as a gunner on an A20 aircraft.

Mexico’s Mayas face Dec. 21 with ancestral calm Roswell Daily Record Sunday, December 16, 2012 storms to the idea that the Earth’s magnetic field could ‘flip’ on that date. Archaeologists say there is no evidence the Maya ever made any such prophesy. Indeed, average Mayas probably never used the Long Count calendar, neither today nor at the culture’s peak between A.D. 300 and 600. The long count was reserved for priests and astronomers, while average Mayas measure time as farmers tend to do — by planting seasons and monthly lunar cycles. Mayan priests, or shamans, at the temple of the Talking Crosses in the town of Felipe Carrillo Puerto say they don’t know when, or if, the world will end. The church was the focus and last bastion of the 1847-1901 Mayan uprising in Mexico and perhaps the most sacred site for average Mayas. Its name comes from the conspirators who hid behind the crosses and whispered instructions to incite the revolt. Mayan priest and farmer Petronilo Acevedo Pena says God may punish humanity someday, because people have stopped going to church. “When people planted their corn fields 50 years ago, everybody from all the towns around would pray” for good harvests, he said. “But when the government started giving out aid, seeds and fertilizer ... what do the people do now? They go to the government to ask for help.” “The world is going to end, but we don’t know when it will end, nobody ever gave a date,” said Acevedo Pena. “They said it would be in 2000, but nothing happened.” Still, advertisers are running wild with the doomsday theme. One beer-company billboard near the resort of Tulum proclaims, “2012 isn’t the end, it’s just the beginning — of the party!” The Mexico subsidiary of Renault is running “end of the world” promotions with interest-free loans for car sales, “Given that the world is ending, we’re ending interest rates!” Oprah Winfrey’s website got into the act by publishing a list of “Apocalypse Dinners.” It says, “Whether the world is really ending or whether you’re just having a busy week, these six make-ahead meals from cookbook author Lidia Bastianich freeze well and feed many.” The Caribbean coast resort of Xcaret issued “million-dollar reward” certificates for anybody who survives the end of the world. “In case the world ends on Dec. 21, 2012, the beneficiary must be in Xcaret the day after the cataclysmic event with a valid photo ID in order to request payment,” the certificate reads. “In case the world comes to an end, the beneficiary will be fully responsible for repopulating the world.” Sandos Hotels and Resorts, a Spanish-owned all-inclusive resort chain, is promoting a “New Era” celebration at its Sandos Caracol hotel in Playa de Carmen, near Tulum. “We invite guests to celebrate a transition to the beginning of what we, and many Mayan leaders and scholars hope will evolve into a new era of environmental sustainability and cultural consciousness,” the hotel’s website says. Expectations are also running high in New Age circles. Shantal Carrillo helps her mother, The Venerable Mother Nah-Kin, run the Kinich-Ahau spiritual center in Merida, and hopes to lead hundreds of people in an energy-renewing ceremony at the “dawn of the new era” at the Mayan ruins of Uxmal. They hope Uxmal, whose roundededge pyramid is unique in the Maya world, will act as an “antenna” for cosmic energy. “We have performed ceremonies for many years to reactivate the pyramid at Uxmal as an antenna, because it had been unused for many years,” said Carrillo, who expects Dec. 21 “to give the world

of thing at the ruin sites.” Moises Rozanes, who runs the run-down Hostal Zocalo in an old building on Merida’s main square, says he once saw a flying saucer and spoke with an extraterrestrial who identified himself as Quetzalcoatl, the Aztec equivalent of the chief Maya god, Kukulkan, the bringer of wisdom. He “told me the world was going to change, but he didn’t say when,” Rozanes said, recalling the 1997 encounter. He doesn’t

UH-MAY, Mexico (AP) — Amid a worldwide frenzy of advertisers and new-agers preparing for a Maya apocalypse, one group is approaching Dec. 21 with calm and equanimity — the people whose ancestors supposedly made the prediction in the first place. Mexico’s 800,000 Mayas are not the sinister, secretive, apocalypse-obsessed race they’ve been made out to be. In their heartland on Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula, Mayas continue their daily lives, industriously pedaling three-wheeled bikes laden with family members and animal fodder down table-flat roads. They tell rhyming off-color jokes at dances, and pull chairs out onto the sidewalk in the evening to chat and enjoy the relative cool after a hot day. Many still live simply in thatched, oval, mud-andstick houses designed mostly for natural air conditioning against the oppressive heat of the Yucatan, where they plant corn, harvest oranges and raise pigs.

When asked about the end next week of a major cycle in the 5,125-year Mayan Long Count calendar, a period known as the 13th Baktun, many respond with a healthy dose of homespun Maya philosophy. “We don’t know if the world is going to end,” said Liborio Yeh Kinil, a 62year -old who can usually be found sitting on a chair outside his small grocery store at the corner of the grassy central square of the town of Uh-May in Quintana Roo state. “Remember 2006, and the ‘6-6-6’ (June 6, 2006)? A lot of people thought something was going to happen, and nothing happened after all.” Reflecting a world view with roots as old as the nearby Ceiba tree, or Yaxche, the tree of life for the ancient Maya, Yeh Kinil added, “Why get panicky? If something is going to happen, it’s going to happen.” A chorus of books and movies has sought to link the Mayan calendar to rumors of impending disasters ranging from rogue black holes and solar

an injection of this energy” by having hundreds of people hold hands at the foot of the pyramid. It’s unclear whether archaeological authorities will allow such ceremonies. Jose May, of the Merida tourism office, expects all of the city’s hotel rooms to be full Dec. 21. “I’m worried that there are going to be more people than (hotel) rooms,” he said. “The people who are coming are basically spiritual, and that could be a problem as well, because those people like to form circles to receive energy, and there is no way to reserve space for that kind

know what’s going to happen Dec. 21, but is happy his hotel is getting business. “Everything’s filling up” as far as bookings for the date, he said. In all the fervor, Mayas rely on an ancestral calm built of good humor, calmness and the fact that it’s too hot to get all worked up about things. “A lot of people are reading things, and getting scared, about the world ending. But that’s not going to happen,” said Mayan priest Ildefonso Cahuich May. “God is not going to tur n around so fast and say, ‘I’m going to kill all my children.”’


A8 Sunday, December 16, 2012 STEVE WOLFE ROSWELL SAFE COALITION Usually I attempt to put just a little humor somewhere within my weekly columns. As I begin this one, I am doubtful that will happen, because frankly there’s just nothing that’s funny. In the past few days and weeks, Roswell has been inundated with various crimes. Maybe much of this crime is “business as usual,” but an incident this week has created a wave of concer n and even fear amongst citizens. Of course, I refer to the “burglary interrupted” on West Third Street in which an innocent victim was shot and killed as he returned to the home of a friend where he had been staying. Tragically, he was

What can you do to reduce crime in Roswell? This crime has precipitated lots of conversation and in particular, a huge volume of Facebook postings in one afternoon. All of those posts reveal a great deal of passion, and some reflect a certain fear among our citizens. Some blast the Roswell Police Department. Others defend it. But I can tell you factually that the law enforcement community cannot do it alone. There will never be enough officers to be everywhere at once. We as citizens have to play a part in preventing and reducing crime in Roswell and Chaves County.

LONDON (AP) — As the world joined Americans in mourning the school massacre in Connecticut, many urged U.S. politicians to honor the 28 victims, especially the children, by pushing for stronger gun control laws. Twitter users and media personalities in the U.K. immediately invoked Dunblane — a 1996 shooting in that small Scottish town which killed 16 children. That tragedy prompted a campaign that ultimately led to tighter gun controls effectively making it illegal to buy or possess a handgun in the U.K. “This is America’s Dunblane,” British CNN host Piers Morgan wrote on Twitter. “We banned handguns in Britain after that appalling tragedy. What will the U.S. do? Inaction not an option.” Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard called Friday’s attack at Sandy Hook Ele-

Sympathy over US school shooting stretches globe Roswell Daily Record Sunday, December 16, 2012 mentary School in Newtown, Conn., a “senseless and incomprehensible act of evil.” “Like President Obama and his fellow Americans, our hearts too are broken,” Gillard said in a statement, referring to the U.S. leader’s emotional expression of condolence. Australia confronted a similar tragedy in 1996, when a man went on a shooting spree in the southern state of Tasmania, killing 35 people. The mass killing sparked outrage across the country and led the government to impose strict new gun laws, including a ban on semi-automatic rifles. Rupert Murdoch recalled that incident in a Twitter message calling the shootings “terrible news” and asking “when will politicians find courage to ban automatic weapons? As in Oz after similar tragedy.” The mass shooting in Connecticut left 28 people dead, including 20 children. The gunman, 20-year -old Adam Lanza, killed his mother at their home Friday before beginning his deadly rampage inside the school in Newtown, then committed suicide, police said. Jose Manuel Barroso, president of the European Union’s executive Commission, said: “Young lives full of hope have been destroyed. On behalf of the European Commission and on my own behalf, I want to express my sincere condolences to the families of the victims of this terrible tragedy.” British Prime Minister David Cameron, said he was “deeply saddened” to learn of the “horrific shooting.” “My thoughts are with the injured and those who have lost loved ones,” he said. “It is heartbreaking to think of those who have had their children robbed from them at such a young age, when they had so much life ahead of them.” Queen Elizabeth II sent a message to President Barack Obama, saying she was shocked to learn of the “dreadful loss of life” and that the thoughts and prayers of all in the U.K. are with those affected by the events. The Vatican said Pope Benedict XVI conveyed “his heartfelt grief and the assurance of his closeness in prayer to the victims and their families, and to all those affected by the shocking event” in a condolence message to the monsignor of the diocese in Connecticut that includes Newtown. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said her “deepest sympathy” is reserved for relatives of the victims. “Once again we stand aghast at a deed that cannot be comprehended,” she said in a statement. “The thought of the murdered pupils and teachers makes my heart heavy.” But amid the messages of condolences, much of the discussion after the Connecticut rampage centered on gun control — a baffling subject for many in Asia and Europe, where mass shootings also have occurred but where access to guns is much more heavily restricted. In messages to Obama, French President Francois Hollande said he was “horrified” by the shooting while Prince Albert II in the tiny principality of Monaco expressed sadness over the “unspeakable tragedy.” Russian leader Vladimir Putin called the events “particularly tragic” given that the majority of the victims were children. “Vladimir Putin asked Barack Obama to convey words of support and sympathy to the families and friends of the victims and expressed his empathy with the American

people,” the Kremlin said in a statement. Father Giuseppe Piemontese — an Assisi-based official of the Franciscan order, founded to further the cause of peace — lamented that there are ‘’so many, too many” tragic shootings that “raise the question about the ease with which you can legally procure arms in the United States, to then use them in a murderous way.” The attack quickly dominated public discussion in China, rocketing to the top of topic lists on social media and becoming the top story on state television’s main noon newscast. China has seen several rampage attacks at schools in recent years, though the attackers there usually use knives and not guns. The most recent attack happened Friday, when a knifewielding man injured 22 children and one adult outside a primary school in central China.

TOKYO (AP) — Candidates made final impassioned appeals Saturday to Japanese voters a day before parliamentary elections that are likely to hand power back to a conservative party that ruled the country for most of the post-war era. While many voters remain undecided — reflecting widespread disillusionment with any party — polls suggest that the electorate will dump Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda’s ruling Democratic Party of Japan three years after it swept to power amid high hopes for change. The DPJ’s inability to deliver on a string of promises and Noda’s push to double the sales tax have turned off voters, who appear to be turning back to the Liberal Democratic Party. The LDP ruled Japan almost continuously since 1955 until it lost badly to the DPJ in 2009. If the LDP wins on Sunday, it would give the nationalistic Shinzo Abe, who was prime minister from 20062007, the top job again. His hawkish views raise questions about how that might affect ties with rival China amid a territorial dispute over a cluster of tiny islands claimed by both countries. “We want to restore a Japan where children are proud to have been born here. Please give us your hand,” Abe, who would be Japan’s seventh prime minister in 6 1/2 years, declared from the top of a truck at a campaign stop in Wako, a city northwest of Tokyo. A win for Abe and the LDP would signal a shift to the right for Japan. The party calls for a more assertive foreign policy and revisions in Japan’s pacifist constitution that would strengthen its military posture. The controversial proposals include renaming the Self-Defense Forces to call them a military — taboo since World War II — and allowing Japanese troops to engage in “collective self-defense” operations with allies that aren’t directly related to Japan’s own self-defense. With Japan’s economy stuck in a two-decade slump, the Liberal Democrats also call for more public works spending. They are generally more supportive of nuclear energy even though most Japanese want atomic energy phased out following last year’s disaster at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant.

DALLAS (AP) — Southwest Airlines Co. will start charging a no-show fee for passengers who fail to cancel tickets before their flights. The company also said Friday that fees on early check-in and oversized bags are going up. And it repeated a longtime goal for boosting profits that could only be met next year if it doubles earnings. Southwest brags that it doesn’t charge ticket-change fees, and it lets customers apply the price of an unused ticket to a later trip. But customers who take advantage of those policies are leaving too many seats empty, the airline says. So beginning sometime next year, Southwest will charge a no-show fee on its cheapest fares, known as “Wanna Get Away� tickets. Neither the date nor the amount of the fee has been set. CEO Gary Kelly said the change will bring Southwest closer in line with policies at other airlines and won’t alienate cus-

Southwest is on pace for revenue this year of about $17.5 billion based on figures from 2011 and the first nine months of 2012. Executives discussed the plan at an investor conference Friday in New York. Southwest has long had a goal of boosting return on investment by 15 percent per year but hasn’t been able to do it. An analyst at the conference told Kelly that hitting the target next year would be heroic. Kelly acknowledged that it would require at least doubling the company’s earnings, but he didn’t back away.

AR TESIA — For the past three games, the Roswell boys basketball team has come out sluggish in the first half before turning it on in the second half to pull away for victories. Such was not the case on Saturday in the championship game of the City of Champions Classic at the Bulldog Pit. Roswell raced ahead early against Lovington and all but put the game out of reach by halftime on its way to a 74-35 win and the program’s fourth City of Champions Classic title. “Yeah, (the kids) got off to a real good start. They were focused. I told them, ‘That’s what we’ve got to start doing because, sooner or later, somebody is going to get us. Then we’re going to be in a big hole,’” said Coyote coach Britt Cooper. “It was good. I think that our defense was pretty good all the way through.

SPORTS B Roswell cruises to CoC title Roswell Daily Record Section KEVIN J. KELLER RECORD SPORTS EDITOR “We had a few breakdowns. But, for the most part, I thought the press was working better tonight and caused some turnovers early, which kind of got everything going.” By going, Cooper meant his team scoring the game’s first 12 points and building a 14-point lead after one quarter of play. Alex Olesinski, who was named the tournament MVP after averaging 27 points and 7.3 rebounds in the team’s three games, led the way in the opening quarter. He connected on 5 of 7 from the field, including 4 of 5 from beyond the arc, in the quarter and scored 16 of the team’s 24 points, including 10 of the first 12. “He was hitting everything early and really set the stage for us,” Cooper said about the lanky 6-foot7 sophomore. “He was rebounding. He just did it all. He was very deserving of getting the MVP.” He fell a rebound shy of a double-double, grabbing nine boards to go along with his game-high 27 points.

NATIONAL BRIEFS TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Mark Lyons hit a contested layup with 7 seconds left and No. 8 Arizona rallied from a six-point deficit in the final minute to pull out an improbable 65-64 win over No. 5 Florida on Saturday night. Arizona (8-0) struggled with Florida’s mix of zone and man defenses, falling behind by 11 in the second half before rallying late. The Wildcats used their press to force consecutive turnovers on inbounds plays, pulling within 64-63 after Brandon Ashley hit one of two free throws. Arizona fouled Kenny Boynton, who missed the front end of a 1-and-1, then raced to the other end for Lyons’ driving shot. Florida (7-1) botched its final possession, fumbling the ball away before taking a wild 3-pointer. Solomon Hill had 18 points, Nick Johnson added 15 and Lyons 14 to give Arizona its best start since opening the 1998-99 season with eight straight wins. Mike Rosario led Florida with 16 points and Erik Murphy added 15. The Gators and Wildcats cruised through their early schedules to set up the McKale Center’s first matchup between top 10 teams since 2004.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — All Butler guard Alex Barlow saw Saturday was space and an opportunity to make a play. So the unlikeliest player on the floor took a chance and made the biggest shot of the game. When Indiana’s defenders failed to converge on the 5foot-11 walk-on, Barlow kept right on going through the lane, drove to the basket and hit a spinning 6-foot jumper with 2.4 seconds left in overtime Saturday to give the Bulldogs another stunning upset — 88-86 over No. 1 Indiana in the Crossroads Classic. “The floater is a shot I work on a lot and I happened to get a lucky bounce,” Barlow said. “It was a good feeling.” Luckily for the Bulldogs (8-2), Barlow was on the floor. The kid who spurned college scholarship offers to play his best sport, baseball, and opted to come to Butler for only one reason — to learn how to coach basketball from Brad Stevens — showed everyone he can hoop it up, too. Stevens didn’t hesitate to constantly keep the ball in Barlow’s hands after three key Butler players had already fouled out. The

Barlow finished with a career-high six points, came up with a big steal that led to a go-ahead 3-pointer late in overtime and finally won it with a shot that bounced off the back of the rim, straight into the air and finally through the net. Indiana (9-1) immediately called timeout to set up a play but could only muster Jordan Hulls’ heave from near half-court, a shot that faded to the left of the basket and suddenly the first college in Indiana to go to back-to-back Final Fours had another school first — its first win in five tries over a No. 1 ranked team. The sold-out arena roared as the game ended, and the Bulldogs rushed to midcourt where they celebrated with Barlow. “I thought he just rose up over Hulls and it looked good,” Stevens said. “Don’t use this as an excuse to get down on Indiana. I still think they’re the team to beat in April. Our guys just played really hard and when it really mattered, they figured out a way.” Butler (8-2) has now won six straight at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, better known as the home to the NBA’s Pacers, and four of the last five when this series had been played in Indianapolis. The Bulldogs have wins over Marquette of the Big East, North Carolina of the ACC and back-to-back victories over Northwestern and Indiana of the Big Ten. And Barlow, the surprising star, overshadowed a supporting cast that had strong games, too. Roosevelt Jones scored 16 points and matched his career -highs with 12 rebounds and six assists before fouling out with 2:03 left in regulation. Andrew Smith finished with 12 points and nine rebounds and held national player of the year candidate Cody Zeller in check until fouling out just 17 seconds after Jones. Rotnei Clarke, who transferred to Butler from Arkansas, scored 13 of his 19 points and made three of his five 3-pointers in the second half. In all, five Bulldogs players finished in double figures while the defense held one of America’s most proficient offenses to just 42.9 percent shooting from the field. “We cost ourselves at the end of the game defensive-

But after forcing Nevada to kick a field goal with 1:48 left that made it 4835, Scott drove the Wildcat s d o wn 7 5 yar d s in about a minute. Arizona then recovered an onside kick and Scott marched his team into the end zone after three plays and 51 yards. "They scored 14 points in less than two minutes," Nevada linebacker Albert Rosette said. "I'm still in shock right now." N ev ad a h ead coach Chris Ault said the team pass defense just didn't make a play when it was needed. "Well, it's a sick feeling,"

he said. "Congratulations to Arizona. They held in there and did it, but it's a sick feeling." Ault said a late injury to Fajardo also hurt Nevada's running game in the last six or so minutes of the game. "He ran it one time, just tucking it up in there," Ault said. "But we could not run our read game at that particular time." Rodriguez, who took a year of f fr om coac hin g after a disappointing stint at Michigan, is now 3-5 in bowl game appearances.

But we made the mistakes on how we guarded them.” The Hoosiers were led by Cody Zeller, who had 18 points, including a layup to tie the score at 86 with 19.3 seconds left in overtime. Victor Oladipo also had 18 points and Will Sheehey scored 13 points off the bench. But the Bulldogs grabbed 19 offensive rebounds and outrebounded Indiana — the first team to do that this season.

No. 17 New Mexico beats New Mexico State 73-58 ALBUQUERQUE, (AP) — New Mexico coach Steve Alford has come to expect strong defense from his 17thranked Lobos. Still, their latest effort took him by surprise. New Mexico blocked a season-high 11 shots and outrebounded taller New Mexico State by four in a 73-58 victory Saturday. “Our guys love challenges,” Alford said. “I don’t think we thought about having 11 blocks. I would just as soon have maybe six blocks and six charges but be that as it may, 11 blocks is a lot of blocks in a game. And it came from a lot of different people.” The bulk of them came from Alex Kirk, who equaled his career high LEFT: New Mexico State's Tyrone Watson, right, passes the ball around New Mexico's Hugh Greenwood during their game, Saturday.

its first nine games by an average of nearly 32 points while shooting 51.5 percent from the field. “There’s a lot of things,” said Zeller, who had only five rebounds and four baskets. “We got outrebounded. There’s a lot of little things that we have to figure, but we’ll get back to work and figure them out.”

with five, and guard Hugh Greenwood, who had a career-best four. That surprised Aggies coach Marvin Menzies, as well. “We didn’t expect that,” he said. “They were fantastically more aggressive than we had seen from that perspective. We didn’t help ourselves any by driving into a 7-footer (Kirk) thinking that he has no lift. But he has natural height so we have to be a little more in tune with where we’re going.” New Mexico’s work on the boards came against a team that had been outrebounding opponents by a comfortable margin. “This was a team with a plus-10 rebound average,” Alford said. “And we beat them four on the glass, so we did a lot of good things.” That was a big key, Menzies said. “They threw the first punch tonight and it was clear that they were the aggressor,” he said. “A telling statistic is rebounding. Any time you’re outre-

bounded, typically the team is a little more aggressive, usually a little tougher. And they just out-toughed us tonight on the glass, which is an area that we take a lot of pride in.” Kirk scored 15 points, while Kendall Williams also had 15 points as well as a career -high eight rebounds and seven assists for New Mexico (11-0). Chad Adams added 13 points and 10 rebounds. Seven of Kirk’s points came during a decisive 11-2 run midway through the first half that turned a 17-14 lead into a 28-16 advantage. Daniel Mullings scored 14 to lead New Mexico State (5-5) but he was the only Aggies player in double figures. The Aggies shot just 32.8 percent from the field. New Mexico State went 8 for 30 in the second half and made four of 16 3-pointers. The Lobos turned it over a seasonlow six times and shot 7 of 13 on 3pointers.

“We just made some mental mistakes at the end.” Jessie Rodriguez paced the Bobcats with 16 points, while Alejandro Ramos added 15 points for Hagerman. Ramos was named to the all-tournament team for Hagerman. Pecos 61, Dexter 54 TULAROSA — In a matchup of two of 2A’s top teams, Pecos used a late flurry at the end of the first half to create some cushion, which the Panthers used to get a win over Dexter in the championship game of the J. May Classic, Saturday. Pecos won the first quarter 21-17 and took a 36-29 lead into the break thanks to a run late in the second. Dexter was never able to overcome the deficit. “We played hard,” said Dexter coach James Voight. “(The two teams) play exactly the same way, up and down the floor. What it came down to was at the end of the second quarter, they got a few more offensive rebounds.

Gateway Chr. 56, Artesia C 37 LAKE ARTHUR — Gateway Christian got 22 points from Andrew Meeks on its way to a win over the Artesia C team in the championship game of the consoence we have the opportunity as a group to exercise a right to, in an orderly fashion, separate from the conference,” Georgetown athletic director Lee Reed said after the Hoyas played in Washington. “The details of all the questions that you’re thinking about, those things have been considered, but now is certainly not the time to discuss those in a public setting.” There also are millions of dollars in NCAA basketball tournament money and exit fees collected recently that will need to be divvied up. The latest hit to the Big East leaves Connecticut, also a founding member, Cincinnati, Temple and South Florida — the four current members with FBS football programs — as the only schools currently in the Big East that are scheduled to be there beyond the 2013-14 school year. “The basketball institutions have notified us that they plan to withdraw from the Big East,” Commissioner Mike Aresco said in a statement. “The membership recognizes their contributions over the long distinguished history of the Big East. The 13 members of the conference are confident and united regarding our collective future.” The Big East is still lined up to have a 12team football conference next season with six new members, including Boise State and San Diego State for football only. Rutgers and Louisville, which both announced intentions to leave the Big East last month, are scheduled to compete in the conference next year. Notre Dame, which is moving to the Atlantic Coast Conference, also is expected to continue competing in the Big East next season in all sports but football and hockey. Also joining the Big East next season are Memphis, Central Florida, Houston and SMU for all sports. As for the departing seven, there has already been speculation they will try to align with other Catholic schools that have strong basketball programs, such as Xavier, Dayton, Creighton or even Gonzaga, which is located in Spokane, Wash. “There’s no target number (of members),” Reed said. “I think it would be safe to say that at the right time, at the proper time, that those things will be discussed and dealt with.” As for the schools such as Cincinnati and Connecticut, which has been trying to get out of the Big East but have nowhere to go, they are trying to stay positive. “We will work diligently to position (Cincinnati) in the most favorable light moving forward,” Cincinnati AD Whit Babcock said. “We will continue to compete and win.” Aresco was hired during the summer after a long career as a television executive, and given the task of trying to bring stability to the Big East and help negotiate a new lucrative television contract that could keep the league viable in the long run. Since being hired, 10 more schools have announced they are leaving the conference and television negotiations had to be put on hold after Louisville and Rutgers said they were leaving.

NMMI 53, Santa Rosa 50 TULAROSA — NMMI beat Santa Rosa on Saturday at the J. May Classic to improve to 6-3. “Going into any tournament we want to go at least 2-1 and we reached that goal (here),” Colt coach Pilar Carrasco said regarding his team’s play.” Angel Reyes paced NMMI with 14 points, while Blade Allen added 12 points and 18 rebounds.

The Coyotes (3-4) grabbed a 14-8 lead after one quarter and pushed its advantage to 34-15 by the half. Roswell coach Joe Carpenter was pleased with his team’s performance. “We played a lot of kids and had a really good outing on the defensive end,” he said. “It was very promising.” Myla Brown led Roswell with 16 points, while Kayleen Willard added 12 points. Victoria Meraz added 10 points and was named to the all-tournament team.

The seven Big East schools that don’t play major college football are separating from the conference many of them founded so they can build a league focused on basketball. The presidents of the seven schools made the announcement Saturday, two days after their intentions were first reported. “Earlier today we voted unanimously to pursue an orderly evolution to a foundation of basketball schools that honors the history and tradition on which the Big East was established,” a statement said. “Under the context of conference realignment, we believe pursuing a new basketball framework that builds on this tradition of excellence and competition is the best way forward.” The seven schools venturing out on their own are: Georgetown, St. John’s, Villanova, DePaul, Marquette, Seton Hall and Providence. “The institutions that have been committed to men’s basketball have made a decision that they are going to continue to stay committed to men’s basketball,” Marquette coach Buzz Williams said after the Warriors beat Savannah State in Milwaukee. Georgetown, St. John’s, Seton Hall and Providence helped form the Big East, which started playing basketball in 1979. Villanova joined in 1980, and Marquette and DePaul in 2005. The Big East began playing football in 1991. “It’s shocking,” former Connecticut star Caron Butler said after helping the Los Angeles Clippers beat Milwaukee on Saturday night. “The traditional Big East is just gone. As a fan of the game, I think you’re going to be cheated. There are a lot of rivalries and history. Not seeing UConn and Georgetown play each other. I think you lose fans with that.” The basketball schools gave no details about their plans, such as when they want to depart and whether they will attempt to keep the name Big East. “St. John’s would love to keep the Big East name,” said the Rev. Donald J. Harrington, the president of St. John’s, who emphasized he was speaking only for his school. “I would like to hear what the football schools think and then try to make a compromise.” Big East bylaws require departing members give the conference 27 months’ notice, but the league has negotiated early departures with Syracuse, Pittsburgh and West Virginia over the past year. Those schools all had to pay exit fees. Big East rules do allow schools to leave as a group without being obligated to pay exit fees. “I think what the statement basically says is within the structure of the Big East confer-

them, it’s a team deal. I thought the whole team picked it up. I thought we had a lot more people contribute than we did last night. “That’s what I was wanting to see. Our bench was a lot better tonight.” Cooper went deep into that bench, playing all 12 players after his team opened up a huge lead on the Wildcats thanks to the Coyotes’ trademark pressure defense. “It’s a cornerstone of what we do. That’s been

our driving force since I’ve been the coach,” Cooper said about that pressure defense. “The last few years, that’s been our signature stuff. People know that you’re going to see that basically until it’s over. “We’ll pull it off once we get a lead, but otherwise, you’re going to see it all game long. Besides physically, I think, mentally, it takes a toll.” Lovington turned the ball over 16 times in the first half and 19 more times in the second half. The Wildcats never got closer than six after Roswell’s quick start and trailed by 28 at the break. “I think (our pressure) had a lot to do with it.

They’ve got some inexperience. But, they’re a good team or they wouldn’t have been in the championship game,” Cooper said about the Wildcats. “They had played well (the first two days), but it’s just a different deal when you’re preparing to play someone who’s going to play full court. “ The clock ran for most of the second half thanks to the mercy rule, and a flurry of six in a row by the Coyotes in the final minute gave Roswell its biggest lead of the night as the final horn sounded. kjkeller@rdrnews.com


This might be even better than the playoffs. Week 15 sure looks like a playoff round with so many matchups between contenders. From Foxborough to Baltimore to Atlanta, from Chicago to Houston to Dallas. Maybe even throw in St. Louis. It feels like the postseason because of the importance of those games for all involved. “I think for us it’s an important football game because we’ve got a lot of stuff in front of us that we want to finish off with this season,” said Atlanta quarterback Matt R yan, who could have been speaking for every team still in the playoff races. And especially for those facing opponents in the same position this weekend, including R yan’s Falcons against the NFC East-leading New York Giants.

In contrast, the Ravens fired offensive coordinator Cam Cameron this week, replacing him with Jim Caldwell — coincidentally, Manning’s last coach in Indianapolis before the four-time MVP headed to Denver. “Jim Caldwell had a tremendous influence on me as my quarterbacks coach,” Manning said. “He was very organized, very detail-oriented, which I’m a fan of that philosophy ... I really felt he took my game to another level. He’s also been a tremendous friend to me and mentor. I miss being around him every day and I miss his friendship every day. That’s how I feel about Jim.” Indianapolis has put together quite a story, going from the NFL’s worst in 2012 to a victory of at least an AFC wild-card spot. Win out and the Colts, led by top overall draft choice QB Andrew Luck, take the South crown. Win here and they are in the playoffs. Houston needs to rediscover the defensive power and stinginess that helped it surge to the top of the standings. Indy is 3-3 on the road, but the victims weren’t in the Texans’ class: the Titans, Jaguars and Lions. Washington (7-6) at Cleveland (5-8) A pair of teams on a roll, with Washington chasing the postseason and Cleveland perhaps saving coach Pat Shurmur’s job with its perseverance and hard work despite all the earlier defeats. So much of the Redskins’ fortunes depend on how quickly QB Robert Griffin III recovers from the knee sprain he suffered last Sunday. The sensational rookie was replaced by another freshman, Kirk Cousins, who completed the rally to beat the Ravens. But Cousins hardly is the same threat as RG3, which might mean even more carries for yet another rookie, running back Alfred Morris. Francisco. The indoor setting plays right into the hands of athletic rookie QB Russell Wilson, and facing the team that got rid of him will surely inspire RB Marshawn Lynch.

San Francisco (9-3-1) at New England (10-3) Six days after exposing the Texans in a prime-time rout, the Patriots take on another likely division winner with Super Bowl aspirations. Should New England, which has won 20 in a row at home in December and has not lost in the second half of the schedule in 21 games, do the same to the 49ers on Sunday night, well, nobody will doubt the Patriots have earned the favorite’s role. The Patriots, winners of seven in a row, tend to live up to such challenges. “This week it’s the 49ers,” said Tom Brady, who threw for four touchdowns against Houston. “It’s not the weather, it’s not the rest, it’s not the crowd — it’s the 49ers. I think as long as you stay focused on them and you focus on what you need to do against them, then you let those other things really take care of themselves. The more you waste energy worrying about a plane flight or weather conditions, it’s really a waste of time. You’ve got to focus on your opponent because whatever you’re dealing with, they’re dealing with the same stuff.” Even with the No. 2 defense in the league, the 49ers are dealing with some special stuff as the Patriots take aim on several NFL offensive records. “Multiple strengths: a really good scheme, really good play calling and then great individual effort at each position, the great ability they have to play as a team,” 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said of the Patriots. “You could talk for hours about how good they are.” Denver (10-3) at Baltimore (9-4) The AFC West champion Broncos have won eight straight as their defense has become staunch. That gives them an edge in that area over the sputtering Ravens, which says a lot in itself considering how good Baltimore’s defense usually is. Then there’s the comfort

New York Giants (8-5) at Atlanta (11-2) Although the Falcons own the NFC South and have the best record in the conference, they’ve looked vulnerable for more than a month. One of two undefeated teams at home — Seattle is the other — Atlanta needs to re-establish some momentum after a weak performance in a loss at Carolina. What better way than against the Super Bowl champions? “When you set out at the beginning of the year, you want to win every game that you play,” Ryan said. “You can’t worry about what everybody else is doing and what that means in terms of your playoff picture. I think we just played poorly last week and that’s something we can’t do again this week.” The Giants also have been up and down and have only a one-game lead in the NFC East, where Dallas and Washington have better divisional records. Green Bay (9-4) at Chicago (8-5) A Packers victory ends the suspense in the NFC North, and the way Chicago is hurting, the Bears might need to start worrying about just getting into the postseason if they fall at Soldier Field. The latest injury is to kicker Robbie Gould’s left calf, and he is done for the season; veteran Olindo Mare was signed this week. Defensive leader Brian Urlacher (hamstring) and outstanding cornerback Tim Jennings (shoulder) also have missed time, and QB Jay Cutler hurt his neck in last week’s loss to the Vikings, but expects to go. Green Bay is beginning to show some balance on both sides of the ball, yet Aaron Rodgers has not had a huge game in a while. That could be coming against the limping Bears in the 186th match of the NFL’s longest series.

Pittsburgh (7-6) at Dallas (7-6) Both clubs are alive in division races, but more realistic might be pursuing a wild card. The loser here will be at a big disadvantage in that chase — unless the other contenders also lose, which is highly possible in this wide-open scramble. For the Steelers, a more comfortable Ben Roethlisberger in his second game back from shoulder and rib problems is a must. Pittsburgh failed at home against San Diego for the first time in the regular season last Sunday, but got help from Dallas when it rallied to knock off Cincinnati. The Cowboys showed against the Bengals the kind of fortitude many have said they lack. They’ll need more of it Sunday, and they’re hardly unbeatable at their palace, going 3-3 this year.

Indianapolis (9-4) at Houston (11-2) The division race is over if the Texans win, and they also are very aware that another loss could force them to return to Foxborough in the playoffs.

Seattle (8-5) vs. Buffalo (5-8), at Toronto Coming off its biggest road win two weeks ago at Chicago, the Seahawks should have no fear of visiting the Bills and dealing with the Western New York elements ... oh, wait. Not much home-field advantage in the Toronto dome for the Bills, who are just 3-3 at Orchard Park, anyway. Seattle still has a shot at taking the NFC West, but needs help to catch San

Minnesota (7-6) at St. Louis (6-6-1) Adrian Peterson has his eyes on more than reaching 2,000 yards rushing in his comeback from major left knee surgery 11 months ago. He’s thinking about Eric Dickerson’s league record of 2,105 set in 1984. Considering how unproductive Minnesota’s passing attack has been with struggling second-year quarterback Christian Ponder — and without star receiver Percy Harvin — expect the Rams to load up against the run. “I take that as a challenge and I love to see it,” said Peterson, who ran through and around a better defense last week in a win over Chicago, gaining 154 yards and scoring twice. The Rams have won three in a row and this is the first of three games against other wild-card chasers; they finish at Tampa Bay and Seattle.

New York Jets (6-7) at Tennessee (4-9) Somehow, even with all the turmoil surrounding Mark Sanchez, Rex Ryan and the Jets, they remain in playoff

Tampa Bay (6-7) at New Orleans (5-8) Look for lots of points at the Superdome. Only the Giants have scored more in the NFC than the Bucs’ 354 and the Saints’ 348. With playoff hopes squashed, New Orleans’ players might be looking to increase their individual numbers against a defense that fell apart against Philly late last week. The Bucs are last defending the pass, and Drew Brees isn’t exactly a novice at picking apart weak units. But the Saints have the league’s worst run defense, which could mean a huge day for Bucs rookie Doug Martin.

Jacksonville (2-11) at Miami (5-8) North Florida vs. South Florida. This might be more interesting if it were the Seminoles against the Hurricanes. The Dolphins dumped Chad Henne and he now has replaced injured — and often inept — Blaine Gabbert as quarterback of the Jaguars. That and Jacksonville’s pursuit of the NFL’s worst record and top pick in the draft give this game at least some flavor. Carolina (4-9) at San Diego (5-8) It’s become fun to watch

contention. Sure, they beat weaklings Arizona and Jacksonville, and not convincingly, in the last two weeks. And after this prime-time affair with another also-ran, they finish against San Diego and Buffalo. So 9-7 and a wildcard spot isn’t inconceivable.

New England’s Tom Brady will need to be on top of his game when the Patriots square off against the 49ers tonight.

Kansas City (2-11) at Oakland (3-10) Last time these bitter rivals met, the Raiders were 2-4 and the Chiefs 1-5. Not much has changed.

Detroit (4-9) at Arizona (4-9) Two of the biggest flops in the league collide. It’s impossible to believe the Cardinals can be any more wretched than in that 58-0 debacle last Sunday at Seattle. If they have any fight left, they will at least show up against the Lions, who look more like the team that spent a decade near the bottom of the standings than the one that broke a playoff drought a year ago.

Cam Newton again. What he did last week against Atlanta surely has been noticed by a San Diego team that snapped a four-game slide with a shocker at Pittsburgh.

lead in the fourth quarter of its game against Chaparral on Saturday and came away with the 48-37 victory thanks to an aggressiveness late that was absent against Artesia. The Rockets led by as much as 13 in the second half, but the lead was down to 37-27 with 5:32 left in the game. Against Artesia a night before, Goddard also held a 37-27 in the fourth quarter. Unlike the game against the Bulldogs, however, the Rockets maintained their lead with an attacking offense. Ricky Roybal made it a 12point game by nailing a pair of free throws that were a result of a drive to the basket. The Lobos split a pair of freebies on the ensuing possession, but David Sweet got fouled after a good entry pass from Roybal and split his free throws to give the Rockets a 40-28 lead with 3:51 left. Chaparral cut its deficit to 10 with a floater from Juan Torres at the 3:21 mark, but Goddard answered with a nifty layup from Mark McCool.

encing half of the court as, defensively, the Rockets played well enough to come away with a victory. Unfortunately for Goddard, the offensive half of the game wasn’t nearly as effective and that resulted in a 3028 loss to the Cavegirls at the City of Champions Classic. Heading into the fourth quarter, the Rockets held a 21-20 advantage on the strength of their defense. Through three quarters, Goddard forced 13 turnovers which directly led to nine of the Rockets’ 21 points. Goddard coach Greg Torres said that his defense did a good job of meeting Carlsbad at midcourt. “I think (defensively), we were just meeting them at half court,” he said. “They knew when they stepped across half court with the ball, there was going to be someone there to meet them. Our guards did a good job of pressuring the ball and I think we got them out of their comfort zone. It served us well tonight.” After a defensive stop to start the final quarter, Goddard grew its lead to 22-20 when Megan Meeks split a pair from the charity stripe. The Rockets pushed their lead to four about three minutes later when Meeks hit two more from the freethrow line. After holding the Cavegirls scoreless for the first 3:40 of the quarter, the Cavegirls scored four points in a 21-second span to tie the score at 24. Goddard had a chance to reclaim the lead at the 3:26 mark, but Courtney Villalpando missed two from the

charity stripe. With 2:17 left, the game swung on a rare foul. Carlsbad was inbounding the ball after a loose-ball foul on Goddard when Abbie Blach touched the ball while out of bounds, drawing a technical foul. Shelby Welch went to the line for the Cavegirls and drilled both of the free throws, giving her team a 26-24 lead. Villalpando split a pair of free throws on the ensuing Goddard possession to cut the Rocket deficit to one, but Carlsbad’s Lainey Bryson made a secondchance layup to push the lead to three. The Rockets had a chance to tie it at 28 after Alex Zumbrun nailed a jumper while being fouled, but her free throw was off, keeping the score at 28-27. After a Danielle Hubbard steal and two of fensive rebounds, Blach was fouled with 40 seconds left and split a pair of freebies to knot the game at 28. Carlsbad played for the last shot, which proved to

Wagner layup and the Lobos never got closer than 11 the rest of the way. Jones said that the early season is a growth process for his team, but that he was pleased with how his team closed out the win. “When you are in control of a game like we were (against Artesia), you have to keep that intensity and focus, and do what got you there,” he said. “(Against Artesia), we tried to open up the floor a little bit more to attack the basket and it was like we were afraid to attack. “We just have to be aggressive because we aren’t a very good team when we aren’t aggressive,” Jones said regarding his team’s ability to close the game against the Lobos. “We have to have that mentality, that so-called killer instinct. When you are up five, 10 or 15, that is not good enough, especially with the 3-pointer. You have to just keep going and going until the final buzzer.” The Rockets were able to close out a victory because their defense didn’t allow a point for 12:29 of game time stretching between the second and third quarters. At the start of the Lobo dry spell, the Rockets trailed 17-10, but by the time Chaparral’s Sebastian Lara hit a 3 from the

Jones said that the run was a result of his defensive pressure and movement on the defensive end. “I think (the run was a result) of our pressure and then moving with the ball,” he said. “When you move after the ball is moved, you are too late. We moved better with the ball when it was in the air.” Jones added that his team continues to improve every game.

The ball bounced around and, as the buzzer sounded, fell through, giving the Cavegirls the win.

DEAR ABBY UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE

DEAR ABBY: Twice in recent years my husband has bought a gift for himself for Christmas, wrapped it, put it under the tree and then opened it on Christmas morning, gleefully exclaiming that it was a great gift and just what he wanted. The first time he did it, he wrote my name on the gift card as the giver. The second time he didn’t bother. When I asked him why, he said it was something he saw in the store and wanted. When I asked why he didn’t just ask me to get it, he didn’t have an answer. He has also bought cards for himself for Valentine’s Day. On both of them he wrote, “To Larry from ‘Hon,’”

his pet name for me. I was flabbergasted and upset and asked him why he would do such a thing. He said he ran across the “perfect card” for him while looking for one for me. I don’t know what to make of his behavior, but it is demeaning and I feel angry for days afterward. He has a habit of comparing my gifts with those from his son or those he bought for himself, and it makes me feel as if mine don’t measure up. My husband is 77. What’s wrong with him? PERPLEXED IN FLORIDA DEAR PERPLEXED: It appears you married someone who likes to buy on impulse and is insensitive to how his words and actions affect others. Look on the bright side: He’s solved the problem of what to get the man who has everything for you! However, because this is a recent change in his behavior, consider reporting it to his doctor.

We also discovered that only invited EMPLOYEES were asked to bring food. Her “real friends” weren’t asked to bring anything. Needless to say, all but one employee remembered they had a “conflict.” If someone doesn’t have the time or money to host a party, there are plenty of inexpensive foods, disposable tableware, etc., that can be used in a pleasant, cost-effective event without burdening — financially or otherwise — invited guests.

DEAR ABBY:

I’m attending a wedding in a few months. The bride has requested that all female guests not wear heels because they’re a short couple. I don’t have any flats that will go with my dress, so I will have to either buy new shoes or “disappoint” the bride.

I’ve been hearing stories about wedding guests being told what colors to wear. I think brides (and couples) like this are going too far. What do you think? PUT OUT IN BRITISH COLUMBIA

DEAR PUT OUT:

I think that if the bridal couple would like to feel a few inches taller on their big day, and buying a new pair of shoes would stretch your budget, you should consider having an old pair of flats dyed to match your dress, or skip the festivities and send your good wishes.

Lou, most dog-food manufacturers and veterinarians recommend that you gradually switch a dog’s food. Take at least a week to 10 days to make the switch. For the first few days, mix 3/4 old food and 1/4 new food. Then move to mixing 1/2 and 1/2 for a few days, and so on. If your dog seems to be adjusting well, you can then start feeding only the new food. Be patient, and make the change gradually. If at any time your dog starts vomiting, having loose bowel movements or acting strange, slow down on switching the food. If problems continue, contact your veterinarian. Heloise P.S.: Be sure to check with your veterinarian before changing pet food.

Xcel Energy plans 2014 rate changes in NM ROSWELL—Citing new investments needed to meet rapidly growing customer needs and purchases of solar and wind energy to meet the state’s renewable energy standard, Xcel Energy today asked the New Mexico Public Regulation Commission to authorize an increase in electricity rates beginning in Jan. 2014. “Our customers expect us to invest wisely in our power plants and electric delivery system to provide the reliable service needed to meet their needs,” said Riley Hill, president and CEO of Southwestern Public Service Company, an Xcel Energy company that serves approximately 100,000 customers in eastern and southeastern New Mexico. “This case is largely driven by these investments, which provide great value to our customers and the state over the long term.” New and upgraded power plants and transmission and distribution lines are the primary drivers of the company’s $45.9 million request. The company has invested more than $450 million in these facilities in the last several years, and expects to invest another $1.2 billion through the end of 2014. Increased customer demand for electricity by almost 10 percent in recent years and about 50 percent over the past decade led to the need for these new facilities. “Our customers benefit from the thriving New Mexico economy and we are well poised to serve it,” Hill continued. “These investments will not only serve our customers well over the long term, but also provide value to the communities we serve through jobs and the increased property and sales taxes paid by the company.” The proposed increase represents a 14.4 percent increase in customer rates overall beginning in 2014. A typical residential customer’s monthly bill would increase by approximately $23 per month. Even with this increase, Xcel Energy customers would still be paying below the current state and national average bills. Almost half of the request is due to the costs of purchasing renewable energy from local solar and wind farms. New Mexico’s Renewable Portfolio Standard requires utilities to provide 10 percent of their total energy from renewable resources, increasing to 15 percent in 2015. “Xcel Energy is in full compliance with these standards, and our purchases have greatly benefited the local renewable energy economy,” Hill said. The proposed increase comes at a time of low fuel costs, which account for about half a typical customer’s monthly bill. Natural gas, which has sharply fallen in price in 2012, fuels about half the power consumed across the region. As a result, New Mexico residential customers have seen bill decreases amounting to approximately $11 in savings per month. “We understand the impact of this proposed increase on our customers, and we of fer an extensive suite of programs to help manage and decrease energy needs,” Hill said. “While all customers contribute to the costs of keeping our system safe and reliable, customers can reduce their individual costs by participating in these energy efficiency programs. Combined, these efforts help us strike a reasonable balance between the need to invest in our system and the need to ensure competitive rates and bills.” Customers may find more information on these money-saving programs at xcelenergy.com

NEW YORK (AP) — Best Buy shares fell on Friday after the struggling electronics retailer said it extended the window for co-founder Richard Schulze to make a buyout bid until after the holiday season. Shares fell $2.16, or 15.3 percent, to $11.96 in midday trading Friday. That erased most of the gains made Thursday when Best Buy shares jumped 16 percent on a report in the Minneapolis Star Tribune that Schulze would make a bid by the end of the week. The report cited unidentified sources. But on Friday, Best Buy said Schulze can make his offer between Feb. 1, 2013, and Feb. 28, 2013. The original proposal deadline was this Sunday, 60 days after the due diligence period started. The Minneapolis company said the extension is in the best interest of shareholders and gives Schulze and his investor partners time to review Best Buy’s full-year financial results. Citi Investment Research analyst Kate McShane, who has a “Neutral” rating on Best Buy, said the probability of a deal appears “slim.” “We believe today’s news shows that Mr. Schulze may be having difficulty finding financial backing from private equity firms,” she wrote in a note to investors. “The extension will allow Mr. Schulze and potential partners to adjust their proposal post holiday results, which we believe could be disappointing.” A spokesman for Schulze declined to comment. Best Buy Co. has been implementing a turnaround plan aimed at improving results as it faces tough competition from discounters and online retailers. In its most recent third quarter, it recorded a loss due to restructuring charges and continued weak sales. Richard Schulze, 71, founded the company in 1966 and is its largest shareholder by far with a 20 percent stake. He has been considering a bid or selling his stake since resigning in June, following an investigation that led to the resignation of CEO Brian Dunn due to an inappropriate relationship with a female staffer.

It pumps highpressure fluids underground to unlock oil and natural gas in a process called hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking.” It helps companies evaluate how much oil sits in underground reservoirs, and Schlumberger provides drill bits, sensors, software and other equipment that are in constant demand during a drilling operation. Although its third-quarter results, released in October, were also weighed down by decade-low prices for natural gas in North America and the falling number of active rigs, it was able to offset that weakness through higher earnings across its units in Europe, Africa, Asia and the Middle East. It will release fourth-quarter earnings in January.

Analysts, on average, expect the oil services firm to earn $1.13 per share in the quarter.

The stock fell $4.26, or 4.2 percent, to $68.30 in morning trading after falling as low as $67.60 earlier. Its shares sank to a 52-week low of $59.12 in late June. They traded as high as $80.78 in February.

Bill Sauble, of Maxwell, was named the New Mexico Cattle Growers’ Association’s 2012 Cattleman of the Year during the Joint Stockmen’s Convention, held Dec. 6-9 in Albuquerque. “To quote those who nominated him for the award, Bill has served his nation, state, community, family and the cattle industry in an amazingly unselfish and unmatched manner,” said Rex Wilson, of Carrizozo, NMCGA president. “We are all better off for Bill’s efforts, proud to call him a friend and pleased to honor him as Cattleman of the Year.” Each year the New Mexico Cattle Growers’ Association honors one of its own selected by the board of directors, for the time,

effort, miles, hours on the phone, blood, sweat and tears they have devoted to the association, our families, our state and often our nation, Wilson noted. The award was sponsored by Far m Credit of New Mexico. Sauble is a past president of the NMCGA, has chaired and served on numerous committees and has traveled across New Mexico and the nation to represent the association. He is currently the chair man of the New Mexico Livestock Board and has served on that board under four different gover nors—no small feat in New Mexico. He is also a Colfax County Commissioner and a member of the U.S. Animal Health Association.

“Bill works just as hard to protect the cattle industry as a whole as he does to ensure the continued success of his family’s operation,” Wilson noted. “He is a man of high character who unfailing answers the call and rises to the occasion, and we’re fortunate to have him in our corner.” In addition, Sauble is a dedicated member of the New Mexico Far m and Livestock Bureau, and the Sauble family was recently honored as that association’s Farm and Ranch Family of the Year. He has also served as a church deacon, 4-H leader, and County Fair volunteer. Sauble graduated from New Mexico State University. After serving in the Navy, he married his high

school sweetheart, Debbie, and the couple returned to the ranch in north-central New Mexico that has been in the family since 1914. They have two children, T roy and Tara, and two grandsons, five-year -old twins Cole and Tyson. The NMCGA has represented the beef industry in New Mexico and the West since 1914 and has members in all 33 of the state’s counties as well as some 14 other states. The association participates in venues necessary to protect beef producers and private property rights including litigation, state and federal legislation and regulatory affairs.

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Kerwynn Williams ran for 235 yards and three touchdowns and No. 18 Utah State won a bowl game for the first time in nearly 20 years, beating Toledo 41-15 on Saturday in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl. The victory capped the best season in Utah State history. The Aggies finished 11-2, won the Western Athletic Conference title outright and had their first bowl victory since 1993. Chuckie Keeton scored on a 62-yard run to put Utah State up 7-3, and Williams, the game's MVP, sparked a 28-point fourth quarter for Utah State when he broke through the defense and raced 63 yards for a touchdown to put the Aggies up 20-9. Williams, who had 18 carries, followed that with TD runs of 5 and 25 yards. Keeton ran for 92 yards and was 21-of31 passing for 229 yards. Toledo (9-4) was able to move the ball and made five trips inside the red zone. But penalties and miscues forced the Rockets to settle for Jeremiah Detmer's three field goals. The Rockets' only touchdown came when Bernard Reedy returned a fourthquarter kickoff 87 yards. Reedy was the only big producer on a Toledo offense held to 315 total yards. Reedy had 51 yards rushing and caught six passes for 62 yards. quarterback Toledo Austin Dantin, who started in place of the injured Terrence Owens, was 12 of 21 passing for 132 yards. Dantin threw an interception in the third quarter to end a promising scoring drive and was replaced by Owens in the fourth quar-

After his 63-yard TD run, Williams broke through the line on the next Utah State possession, dashing 56 yards before being tackled at the 5. He scored one play later, then scored his final touchdown 1:30 later. Utah State rolled up 582 yards on offense, including 353 yards on the ground.

Giving hope on Christmas to tomorrow?s Despite what may appear as evidence to the contrary, it’s a yearlong effort—even when its signature toy truck logo and strategically placed donation drop-offs are only highly visible during the Christmas season. Fortified by a generous community, Toys for Tots had its annual gift-giving event Saturday at the Yucca Recreation Center. However, the hard work it takes to have such an event—including community outreach and ongoing social and business connections—never ceases. Toys for Tots’ donation drop-off boxes are placed in various establishments every year toward the beginning of November. This year, 52 boxes were placed around town. However, the Toys for Tots t o program’s collection goes on all year, and those interested may help out economically donate a new, unwrapped toy whenever they can. disadvantaged children of our Organizer Don Hunter helps ensure every dollar and community,” he said. every toy donated in Chaves County stays in Chaves Overseen by the Marine Corps Reserves, County.

When a child ents know receives a gift they had wished for, they know everything is okay for that moment in time. It’s a feeling a child never forgets, Hunter said. “Christmas represents so many things to so many people.

It all depends on a gift. “That’s the difference I want to make,” he said. “That’s what Toys for Tots does.” A retired Marine who has been involved with Toys for Tots in several states for 30 years, Hunter said the program represents “the human side” of the Marine Corps, which is traditionally known for its highly polished look and strict rules.

One local organization, the Estilo Car Club, has helped the local Toys for Tots faction tremendously. “If it was not for them, (we) would not have a Toys for Tots campaign,” Hunter said. Although diligent, hard work goes in to the Toys for Tots campaign yearlong, Hunter said he concentrates on the effort even more during the weeks following Thanksgiving, beginning on the day often referred to as Black Friday. Between Black Friday and the day of the giftgiving, Hunter focuses solely on bringing Christmas to local children who are most in need. creFounded in 1947 in Los Angeles by Marine reservist Maj. ated the program’s Bill Hendricks, Toys for Tots was adopted by the Marine toy train logo.

Q: My wife and I got married over the summer. Her family lives three hours away, and my family lives four hours away in the opposite direction. Both families want us to come home for Christmas, and we’re literally caught in the middle. Help! Jim: We hear from many couples who struggle with this dilemma. The wife’s parents might insist on having their little girl at home on Christmas morning. But the husband’s mom is fixing a huge turkey dinner and says she’ll be hurt if he isn’t there to share it. Just wait until you have kids—things can get downright ugly when grandchildren are involved! To help navigate this minefield, it’s important to remember two principles: be fair, and be flexible. When it comes to being fair, try to come up with a solution that works for both of your extended families. That might mean spending Thanksgiving with one family

Newlyweds must compromise on holiday invitations When it comes to being flexible, think about what is in the best interests of those around you. Perhaps spending half the holidays on the road is not what your budget can handle right now. Don’t be afraid to tell your extended family that it’s honestly not a good idea for you to travel this year. There’s nothing wrong with you and your wife having Christmas at home and starting some traditions of your own. Just be sure to communicate your decisions early so your family members can plan accordingly. Don’t wait until the last minute to tell them. Whatever you decide, just make sure that you and your wife are engaging in healthy communication on the subject. Don’t let pressure from extended family members undermine the fact that you and your wife are on the and Christmas with the other, and then switching off the next year.

This issue can provide you and your husband with a great opportunity to learn what it means to compromise and be flexible.

same team! Q: My husband and I were recently married. We’re very happy and have a great relationship, except for one thing: I don’t get along with his friends. This has led to arguments and tension between us. Is there a way to solve this problem? Dr. Greg Smalley , executive director of marriage and family formation: Many newlyweds find themselves faced with challenges of this nature soon after the wedding, and their ability to work through them together is an important measure of the strength of their relationship.

FAMILY SYNDICATED COLUMNIST

However, if the issue is simply that you have different tastes and interests than your husbands’ friends, we would challenge you to do the hard work of finding common ground with these folks. For example, let’s say this group loves football and monster truck rallies—things that don’t interest you in the slightest. Would you consider biting the bullet and learning a little bit about the NFL and oversized trucks—if only for

You didn’t mention what it is about your husband’s friends that bothers you. Are they engaging in behavior that is immature, irresponsible or immoral? If so, we’d suggest that your husband has a responsibility to confront this issue. He needs to ask himself whether these friendships are truly good for him and for your marriage.

Those purple-flower weeds and how to get rid of them Q. I have just cleaned out my garden—not hard, it did not do much this year. But one of the plants that thrived is a weed. I do not know the name of it, but it is green, leafy, with very tiny thorns on the leaves and stems. I have seen small purple flowers with yellow centers on them if they get big enough. I pull them, but probably do not get the roots. We till our garden each year, usually fall and spring, so I would think the roots would get pulled up. I have not seen this type of weed in any other area of the yard, just the garden. I have not used a weed killer on them as I do not know what that would do to the rest of the garden. We live in North Albuquerque Acres. These have been a thorn in my side— no pun intended—ever since we moved here eight years ago. We were on the west side for many years and I do not remember having these over there.

Selling fur niture on Craigslist, especially during trying economic times, has become extremely popular. Attic treasures can be turned into cash by sprucing up furniture and following some “golden rules” for bringing furniture back to life. The first step is to clean it up but avoid homespun recipes which may ruin the finish. You should avoid homemade concoctions involving soap, detergent, vinegar and ammonia. What do a rope, bungee cord and a stack of books have in common? They’re simple household items

that will provide an easy way to tighten a wobbly chair or re-glue a loose drawer without fancy or expensive woodworking. Nicks and scratches should disappear. Nothing brings down the price on a quality piece of furniture quicker than a sur face filled with unsightly nicks and scratches. Be sure to use a fix that will give new life to marred furniture. And finally, bring on the shine. Years of attic or basement dwelling may have taken a toll on the furniture you want to photograph and sell. Use a simple remedy from Minwax to bring back the luster to make a furniture finish look brand new. “Creative Living” is produced and hosted by Sheryl Borden.

ENGAGEMENT

the sake of your marriage? To do so would certainly represent a compromise on your part, but it would also send a signal to your husband that you’re willing to set your interests aside once in a while for the sake of his. Hopefully he’ll do the same thing for you on occasion—perhaps by letting his friends go to the next event without him, and instead taking you out on a quiet date.

Any suggestions you may have to get rid of these pests would be most appreciated. Thank you for all

that you do. Jo H. A. I think you are describing the silver-leaf nightshade, Solanum elaeagnifolium. This is a common weed with pretty purple flowers and prickles on the stems and undersides of the leaves. The leaves also have a wooly covering and often appear grey or silver, but can also appear greenish when young. Since you are pulling the plants persistently, you may not see the gray color. This weed freezes to the ground each winter and returns from a perennial root system in the spring. Rototilling cuts up the overwintering roots into small pieces which may each grow into a new plant. These new plants growing from small pieces of root are easier to pull up than those growing from larger

Pulling them up as you are doing is good, but it will take several years of very persistent pulling and digging to have a significant effect on them. Broadleaf herbicides (that kill broadleafed plants) can help you eliminate the nightshade weeds, but you must use care because they can also harm broad-leafed garden crops and flowers. Many of these can be absorbed by roots of non-target plants in the garden. A glyphosate based herbicide has no soil activity and will be less likely to harm other plants as long as the other plants are protected from the spray. Be sure to read, understand, and follow the directions on the label if you use herbicides.

roots, so tilling is not a bad practice if you will pull the new plants. The larger ones may be removed by digging deeply.

Whether you choose to use an herbicide or to manually remove the plants, persistence is important. The weeds should be treated or pulled within two weeks of their reappearance after each removal. The goal is to prevent the plant from feeding the root system, thus depleting stored foods in the roots and reducing the ability of the weeds to regenerate. This takes time.

President’s recent pot comments 2 dead after prompt call for policy, some clarity shooting at Las Roswell Daily Record low,” said William Osterhoudt, a San Francisco criminal defense attorney representing government officials in Mendocino County who recently received a demand from federal investigators for detailed information about a local system for licensing growers of medical marijuana. Assemblyman Tom Ammiano said he was frustrated by Obama’s comments because the federal government continues to shutter dispensaries in states with medical marijuana laws, including California. “A good step here would be to stop raiding those legal dispensaries who are doing what they are allowed to do by law,” said the San Francisco Democrat. “There’s a feeling that the federal government has gone rogue on hundreds of legal, transparent medical marijuana dispensaries, so there’s this feeling of them being in limbo. And it puts the patients, the businesses and the advocates in a very untenable place.” Obama, in an interview with ABC’s Barbara Walters, said Friday that federal authorities have “bigger fish to fry” when it comes to targeting recreational pot smokers in Colorado and Washington. Some advocates said the statement showed the president’s willingness to allow residents of states with marijuana laws to use the drug without fear of federal prosecution. “It’s a tremendous step forward,” said Joe Elford, general counsel for Americans for Safe Access. “It suggests the feds are taking seriously enough the idea that there should be a carveout for states with marijuana laws.” Obama’s statements on recreational use mirror the federal policy toward states that allow marijuana use for medical purposes. “We are not focusing on backyard grows with small amounts of marijuana for use by seriously ill people,” said Lauren Horwood, a spokeswoman for U.S. Attorney Benjamin Wagner in Sacramento. “We are targeting money-making commercial growers and distributors who use the trappings of state law as cover, but they are actually abusing state law.” Alison Holcomb, who led the legalization drive in Washington state, said she doesn’t expect Obama’s comment to prompt the federal government to treat recreational marijuana and medical marijuana differently. “At this point, what the president is looking at is a response to marijuana in general. The federal government has never recognized the difference between medical and non-medical marijuana,” she said. “I don’t think this is the time he’d carve out separate policies. I think he’s looking for a more comprehensive response.” Washington voters approved a medical marijuana law in 1998, and dispensaries have proliferated across the state in recent years. Last year, Gov. Chris Gregoire vetoed legislation that would have created a state system for licensing medical dispensaries over concern that it would require state workers to violate the federal Controlled Substances Act. For the most part, dispensaries in western Washington have been left alone. But federal authorities did conduct raids earlier this year.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — President Barack Obama says he won’t go after pot users in Colorado and Washington, two states that just legalized the drug for recreational use. But advocates argue the president said the same thing about medical marijuana — and yet U.S. attorneys continue to force the closure of dispensaries across the U.S. Welcome to the confusing and often conflicting policy on pot in the U.S., where medical marijuana is legal in many states, but it is increasingly difficult to grow, distribute or sell it. And at the federal level, at least officially, it is still an illegal drug everywhere. Obama’s statement Friday provided little clarity in a world where marijuana is inching ever so carefully toward legitimacy. That conflict is perhaps the greatest in California, where the state’s four U.S. Attorneys criminally prosecuted large growers and

The mass killing inside a Connecticut elementary school has educators across the country reviewing their security measures, reassuring parents and asking, “What if?” “Every principal will be going through their own protocols, the things they do on a daily basis to protect their students and staff,” said Dr. Will Keresztes, associate superintendent for student support in the school system in Buffalo, N.Y. Amid grief and condolences for the 20 children fatally shot Friday by a gunman in Newtown, Conn., school leaders nationwide sent emails and text messages and phone recordings assuring parents and children their schools are safe, while acknowledging the difficult balancing act in keeping that promise. “It’s just very difficult to be able to, in today’s world, to eliminate all those risks,” said Rick Johnson, superintendent of the 3,000-student Mahomet-Seymour Community Schools district in rural eastern Illinois. Driven by previous school shootings, many district officials say they already lock building doors, require identification from visitors, employ safety officers — some of them off-duty police officers — and have established text or other notification systems for parents. There are metal detectors at some public schools considered at risk for violence, including some schools in New York City and Milwaukee. Portable detectors are brought out as needed in some districts. At Sandy Hook Elementary, the scene of the Friday massacre, Principal Dawn Hochsprung wrote a letter before the school year started outlining new safety measures including locked doors during school hours.

launched a coordinated crackdown on the state’s medical marijuana industry last year by threatening landlords with property forfeiture actions. Hundreds of pot shops went out of business. Steve DeAngelo, executive director of an Oakland, Calif., dispensary that claims to be the nation’s largest, called for a federal policy that treats recreational and medical uses of the drug equally. “If we’re going to recognize the rights of recreational users, then we should certainly protect the rights of medical cannabis patients who legally access the medicine their doctors have recommended,” he said. The government is planning to soon release policies for dealing with marijuana in Colorado and Washington, where federal law still prohibits pot, as elsewhere in the country. “It would be nice to get something concrete to fol-

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A man shot and fatally wounded a woman, then killed himself Friday at the Excalibur hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip, sending many patrons fleeing in fear. It happened at about 8:30 p.m. near the high-rise hotel’s front entrance, Las Vegas Metro Police Lt. Ray Steiber said. The man died at the scene of an apparent selfinflicted gunshot wound after shooting the woman, who was a vendor at Excalibur’s concierge desk, Steiber said. The woman was pronounced dead later at a local hospital. Neither the gunman nor the victim was identified, and Steiber said the relationship between the two wasn’t immediately clear. The shootings happened as the hotel’s front desk was busy on a Friday night with the National Finals Rodeo and other events in town. Steiber said patrons scattered at the first sound of gunfire, and no one else was wounded. Witnesses on the casino floor said they saw poker players abruptly leaving their tables and many distraught people running for the exits after the gunshots rang out, the Las Vegas Sun reported. Trisha Banks, 14, and her sister Danielle Banks, 17, were at the hotel for a holiday cheerleading party with 80 other cheerleaders when they heard four shots. They hid under some tables until the situation was cleared about 10 minutes later. “It’s scary after what happened this morning (in Newtown, Conn.) and then this,” Trisha Banks told the Sun. “How can people do this?” The woman who was shot worked at the concierge desk as a vendor for the travel website VEGAS.com, which is owned by the Greenspun family, publishers of the Las Vegas Sun. “We were saddened to learn that a member of the VEGAS.com family was the victim of tonight’s tragic and senseless killing at the Excalibur,” VEGAS.com Chief Operating Officer Bryan Allison told the newspaper. “Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends.” MGM Resorts International owns the Excalibur and several other hotels on the Las Vegas Strip. Company spokesman Gordon Absher said the hotel and casino remained open to guests and patrons. However, the area where the shooting took place was cordoned off by police while the investigation was under way. The Excalibur has approximately 4,000 rooms and is located at the intersection of Tropicana Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard. The hotel is named for the mythical sword of King Arthur.

Hochsprung was among those killed Friday. “We don’t want our schools to be fortresses but we want them to be safe,” said Steve Hegarty, a spokesman for Hillsborough County School District in Florida, where counselors were available to talk to students and offer parents advice on how to help children cope with the news. In rural Vermont, where a man shot and killed two teachers in Essex six years ago, there are cameras inside or outside some buildings, Education Commissioner Armando Vilaseca said. Some districts have specific plans to respond to a dangerous intruder. North Carolina’s largest school district holds drills for such a threat. An intercom announcement triggers teachers to lock classroom doors, close blinds, turn off room lights, barricade the door with desks and move students away from windows and doors and into a closet, Wake County Public School spokeswoman Cris Mulder said. In Omaha, Neb., trying to “take out” the intruder is permitted as a last resort. One adult would distract the intruder while another moves in to restrain him. “Whatever you need to do instead of lying there and being a victim,” Safety Administrator Roddie Miller said. Lockdown drills have become routine across the country and can serve a dual purpose: Prepare and reassure. “We continue to practice because, though we never anticipate a problem, we want to give our students the comfort of knowing our emergency procedures,” said Laurel Fretz, principal of Santa Monica High in California.

Secretary of state faints, sustains concussion The 65-year-old Clinton, who’s expected to leave her job soon after serving WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who skipped an overseas trip this past week because of a stomach virus, sustained a concussion after fainting, the State Department said Saturday. as America’s top diplomat during President Barack Obama’s first ter m, is recovering at home and being monitored by doctors, according to a statement by aide Philippe Reines. No further details were immediately available. The statement said Clinton was dehydrated because of the virus and that she fainted and sustained a concussion. She will continue to work from home in the week ahead and looks forward to being back in the office “soon,” the statement said. Congressional aides do not expect her to testify as scheduled at congressional hearings on Thursday into the Sept. 11 attack against a U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador. The aides spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to publicly discuss Clinton’s status. Clinton backed out of a

Roswell Daily Record

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Athletic footwear and apparel giant Nike Inc. plans to expand its operations in Oregon and hire hundreds of workers but wants the government to promise that tax rules won’t change, prompting a special session of the Legislature. Gov. John Kitzhaber said he’ll call lawmakers together Friday in Salem to create a new law authorizing him to grant Nike’s wish, and legislative leaders said they’ll go along. The Legislature is due to meet in its regular annual session beginning Jan. 14, but Kitzhaber said Nike needed certainty sooner. The company was being wooed by other states, he said. “Getting Oregonians back to work is my top priority,” Kitzhaber said in a news conference. Nike wants an agreement that its state income tax will continue to be based solely on the company’s Oregon sales, regardless of any future changes in the tax code, for a negotiated time period. Before in 2005, Oregon also included a company’s in-state payroll and property in the corporate tax formula. Kitzhaber is asking for authority to make such a guarantee if a company invests at least $150 million and hires 500 or more workers. Nike has not specified its expansion plans, and spokeswoman Mary Remuzzi wouldn’t say how many people would be hired beyond the 500 required under the proposed legislation. The company hasn’t decided where it would expand. “We support this proposed legislation as a way to help us continue to grow in Oregon,” Don Blair, Nike vice president and chief financial officer, said in a statement. The proposal is not a tax break for Nike but rather a tool to offer tax certainty to any company planning a big investment, Kitzhaber said. Nike employs 44,000 people globally, including 8,000 in Washington County, home to its world headquarters in the Portland suburb of Beaverton. The company said its Oregon workers make an average wage of more than $100,000. Kitzhaber said he expects the Legislature to adopt the legislation in a one-day special session. House and Senate leaders from both parties responded positively to the governor’s proposal. “This is a rare opportunity and we’re not going to miss it,” said Democratic state Senate President Peter Courtney. Oregon’s current tax formula, known as a “singlesales factor,” benefits corporations like Nike that have a large share of their payroll and property in Oregon but a small share of their sales here. Chuck Sheketoff, director of the liberal Oregon Center for Public Policy, has been a critic of the single-sales factor and compared Kitzhaber’s proposed legislation to a no-tax pledge created by anti-tax activist Grover Norquist. “The governor’s asking the Legislature to take a Norquist-like pledge for one company,” Sheketoff said. Nike began discussions with the governor’s office about a month ago, Kitzhaber said. The governor and Nike pointed to an economic impact study by AECOM that said a potential Nike expansion could create as many as 12,000 jobs and $2 billion a year in economic impact by 2020. But the actual impact is murky. The study was based on a theoretical Nike expansion, not necessarily any specific plans the company has. It counts hiring by Nike as well as a multiplier effect from those workers buying more goods and services.
